Improving Your Smile with Lumineers [INFOGRAPHIC]

Are you dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile? Do you wish that your teeth were whiter, straighter, or free from chips and gaps? If so, talk to your dentist in Manhattan about whether Lumineers are right for you. Lumineers are specialty dental veneers that are ultra-thin, meaning that you need very little to none of your natural teeth removed for fitting. Consider getting Lumineers as part of a smile makeover if you are concerned that your teeth are severely chipped, discolored, or gapped. Individuals with crooked teeth may even be able to opt for Lumineers instead of getting traditional braces. Check out this infographic to learn more about the benefits of Lumineers and how they can improve your smile. Please share with your friends and family.

What to Expect from the Snap-On Smile

Dentist Manhattan

When you don’t love your smile, it can affect your life in a number of ways. You may feel less confident in your professional life, and you may shy away from personal relationships because you’re embarrassed to show your teeth. Cosmetic dentistry treatments can correct the flaws that bother you, but it is not always practical for someone to devote the time and money to a full smile makeover. Fortunately, if you need a quick fix for your smile, your dentist can help with a Snap-On Smile®. This fast and affordable cosmetic dentistry treatment gives you an option to enjoy a better smile until the time is right for more extensive dental services. Here is what you need to know.

What is the Snap-On Smile®?
The Snap-On Smile® is a temporary set of teeth that snap snuggly over your existing teeth. It looks like your natural teeth but obscures a wide range of aesthetic complaints, including misshapen teeth, missing teeth, discoloration, and spacing issues. Your new smile is designed specifically to fit your mouth, and you can have your new set of teeth in as little as two weeks.

What is the process?
If you and your dentist decide that a Snap-On Smile® is right for you, then you will browse different shape and shade options for your new smile. Your dentist will make impressions of existing teeth and snap photos of your smile. Within about two weeks, your customized Snap-On Smile® will be ready to wear.

What are the advantages?
A Snap-On Smile® is fast, painless, and less expensive that other smile makeover treatments. It is the perfect stopgap measure to give you a new smile for a special event or until you are ready for full cosmetic dentistry procedures. With the right care, your Snap-On Smile® can last for three to five years, while you decide which cosmetic dentistry procedures are right for you.

Dr. Michael J. Wei is pleased to offer the Snap-On Smile® system as part of his cosmetic dentistry services. If you’re dissatisfied with your smile, make an appointment at our dentist office in Manhattan by calling (212) 982-4080.

Your Sedation Dentistry Options

Dentist NYC

Anxiety keeps many people out of their dentists’ chair for treatments they need, including preventative teeth cleanings, and treatments they want, like cosmetic dentistry procedures. Fortunately, you don’t have to stay away from the dentist no matter how powerful your dental phobia is. With sedation dentistry, you can get the treatments you need comfortably, without any anxiety. There are several options for sedation dentistry, so set up a consultation with your dentist to discuss which method may be right for you.

STA System
If your anxiety about your dental treatment is centered on a fear of needles that is required to deliver local anesthesia, then talk to your dentist about the STA System. The STA System is a computer-guided, clinically proven system for delivering local anesthesia virtually painlessly. The STA System is also more precise, so there is less residual numbness outside of the treatment area after you receive care. For some patients, knowing that they don’t have to face an uncomfortable injection is enough to get them in for treatment.

Nitrous Oxide
Nitrous oxide, also called laughing gas, is inhaled through your nose before your dental treatment begins. Most people feel the effect within 20 to 30 seconds. Some patients stay conscious, but calm, throughout their treatment, while others fall into a light sleep. Nitrous oxide is safe to take for the duration of your procedure, and there are no side effects. Most patients recover immediately after the gas is stopped and can return home without assistance.

Oral Medications
An oral sedative can provide powerful relaxation for your dentist appointment. Patients take the pill about an hour before going to the dentist office so that it takes effect before your treatment. Because the sedative causes extreme drowsiness, you will need someone to help take you to and from your appointment.

Dr. Michael J. Wei offers these sedation options so that all of your dental treatments are comfortable for you, no matter your history of dental anxiety. Find out how our dentist in Manhattan can help you get the oral care you need by calling (212) 982-4080.

Brightening Your Smile

If you’re like many people, you want a whiter smile but aren’t quite sure how to achieve it. Although dietary changes, like cutting back on staining foods and drinks, can make a difference, everyone’s smile gets duller and more yellow as they age. Fortunately, your dentist has treatments that can help. Watch this video to learn more about teeth whitening.

The kind of whitening your dentist recommends will depend on the kind of staining you have. Surface stains can easily be removed with whitening toothpastes, but deeper stains require professional tooth bleaches. Dentists typically offer whitening treatments in-office or with custom-made trays patients used at home.

Dr. Michael J. Wei provides extensive cosmetic dentistry treatments in Manhattan, from teeth whitening to complete smile makeovers. You can make an appointment for a consultation today by calling (212) 982-4080.
